Artwork Details :
Created circa 2004; Ghetto Rat by Banksy was executed over a decade ago on the facade of a Hayne Street building in London near the world famous Smithfield Meat Market. The work was labelled as graffiti by the city council and subsequently whitewashed over. The building itself was eventually demolished to make way for the Crossrail transit line and the artwork was carefully extricated and painstakingly restored using a process that dissolved the top layer of surface paint to uncover the original Banksy stencil underneath
